Michael Connelly writes assured, well-plotted mysteries that hit all the right buttons ... CITY OF BONES is altogether a good, fast-paced, ingeniously plotted read — OBSERVER
One of Connelly's best books ... Characterisation sharp enough to draw blood; excitements of the heart and mind; crime fiction at its aching, impeccable best — LITERARY REVIEW
A stunningly good novel: powerful, intriguing and impossible to lay down - perhaps, indeed, the best of the series — EVENING STANDARD
Slick plotting, far-from-gratuitous thrills, a breakneck pace and superb characteisation have always typified Michael Connelly's novels about the dark side of California. CITY OF BONES, which sees the return of Detective Harry Bosch, proves no exception — GUARDIAN
[A] taut thriller from the award-winning author ... It's realistic, riveting and first-rate — HELLO
A remarkable achievement: a page-turning thriller that rejects easy answers or feelgood endings, a crime novel which points out that solving a crime does not in itself even begin to set the world to rights — MAIL ON SUNDAY
Packed with Connelly's memorable twists and turns ... emotionally wrenching, yet never lacking the compassion that Bosch has come to symbolise, CITY OF BONES will delight Connelly's millions of fans and should - if there is any justice in the world (which Bosch doubts) - win him a great many more — DAILY MAIL
Connelly is, in my view, simply the best crime thriller writing working today and in CITY OF BONES he is on top form — MAIL ON SUNDAY
Michael Connelly just has to be the best writer of crime fiction about at the moment — IRISH TIMES

Flowers Over the Inferno

Ilaria Tuti

In a quiet village surrounded by centuries-old woods and the imposing Italian Alps, a series of violent assaults take place. Police inspector and profiler Teresa Battaglia is called back from the city when the first body is found in the woods, a naked man whose face has been disfigured and eyes gouged out. Teresa quickly realises that the killer intends to strike again, and soon more victims are found - all having been subjected to horrendous mutilations. When a new-born baby is kidnapped, Teresa's investigation becomes a race against the clock...But Teresa is also fighting a different kind of battle: a battle against her own body, weighed down by age and diabetes, and her mind, once invincible and now slowly gnawing away at her memory...Something devastating has taken place here in these mountains. Something that requires all my investigative abilities. My name is Teresa Battaglia, I am a police chief inspector, specialised in profiling, and I walk through hell every day. It's not my gun, nor my uniform: my real weapon is my mind. Yet my mind is failing me. Not my body, weathered by the passing of time, nor my tormented heart. My name is Teresa Battaglia, I have a secret that I dare not reveal even to myself, and for the first time in my life I am afraid".(p) Orion Publishing Group 2019

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AS TETHEREDAn unusual, hauntingly atmospheric crime novel from a stunning talent.Daisies for innocence; irises for hope; asphodel for eternal sorrow...Clara Marsh is an undertaker. She spends her solitary life among the dead and bids them farewell with a bouquet from her own garden. But Clara's carefully structured life shifts when she discovers a neglected little girl, Trecie, playing in the funeral parlour, desperate for a friend. It changes even more when Detective Mike Sullivan starts questioning her again about a body she prepared three years ago, an unidentified girl found murdered in a nearby strip of woods. Unclaimed by family, the community christened her Precious Doe. When Clara and Mike learn that Trecie may be involved with the same people who killed Precious Doe, Clara must choose between her solitary but steadfast existence and the perils of binding one's life to another. Clara's search for the girl pulls her into a spiralling series of events that threaten to endanger the few people Clara has grown to love - and finally brings her own tragic and long-buried past to the surface.

From New York Times #1 bestselling author Brandon Sanderson comes a detective thriller in a police beat like no other. Anthony Davis and his partner Chaz are the only real people in a city of 20 million, sent there by court order to find out what happened in the real world 10 days ago so that hidden evidence can be brought to light and located in the real city today.Within the re-created Snapshot of May 1st, Davis and Chaz are the ultimate authorities. Flashing their badges will get them past any obstruction and overrule any civil right of the dupes around them. But the crimes the detectives are sent to investigate seem like drudgery - until they stumble upon the grisly results of a mass killing that the precinct headquarters orders them not to investigate. That's one order they have to refuse.The hunt is on. And though the dupes in the replica city have no future once the Snapshot is turned off, that doesn't mean that both Davis and Chaz will walk out of it alive tonight.
